FBI Involved in Michael Jackson Molestation Trial

12/22/2009 2:29 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

UPDATE: In our document search, we just found out why the FBI was involved in the Michael Jackson molestation case. According to one of the docs, the LAPD Sexually Exploited Child Unit contacted the FBI in 1993, asking the agency if it would be "interested in working a possible federal violation against Jackson concerning the transportation of a minor across state lines for immoral purposes."

The FBI was secretly involved in the child molestation case against Michael Jackson, according to documents just released by the agency.

In July, 2004, a memo was drafted stating that the Santa Barbara County District Attorney's investigation produced "collateral investigative issues, some of which potentially rise to the level of Federal Violations, in the New York and Miami Divisions as well as the Los Angeles Division." The memo does not elaborate on the nature of the alleged offenses.

According to the docs, FBI special agents from L.A., New York and Miami were assigned to assist Santa Barbara county prosecutors in their case against Jackson -- a case in which Jackson was found not guilty.

The memo says the special agents and prosecutors spent time discussing various strategies in the case.

There are also documents showing the FBI was involved in the 1993 molestation investigation. In one doc, there are notes which state Jackson was riding in a train with a boy whom Jackson identified as his cousin. The notes say, "He was very possessive of boy," and at night on the train a witness "heard questionable noises through wall."

It's interesting that the "questionable" noises heard on the train by a Canadian social worker took place in March 1992 - Michael didn't know Chandler before May of that year, so it has to be false or it's another boy. But even so, no other boy has verified this or accused Michael of anything connecting to this, which is why the FBI went empty handed. I know some are going to say - "but that's because they are afraid of telling the truth and be attacked by crazy MJ fans." - Come on, that's so ridiculous and even if Michael did molest children it makes it highly unlikely that he would be able to do so for so many years without not having a stream of victims and the victims parents gushing about it. I mean, some cowardly parents might be afraid to come forward, but most parents who find out their child has been molested would make HELL and certainly not pursue money instead of justice. If Michael Jackson really was a pedophile, why has 17 years of international investigation by the FBI not been able to present anything other than hearsay and out- clips of sensationalist newspapers – no solid evidence of pedophilia, but instead confirmation of a rather unusual BUT NOT SINISTER relation with children. If Michael Jackson really was a pedophile, I find it mind-boggling that out of all the children he had been in contact with throughout his life - only three accused him of molestation (pretty unusual for an alleged pedophile who even had children sleeping in his bed!) and it’s rather coincidental that those children’s parents all wanted money as compensation. As they say: where there’s smoke, there’s fire, but in this case the fire came from the other camp – the extortion camp!

Janalala4 ~ I agree with you 100%. I am 63 yrs old and have preferred the company of young children and animals over adults for many, many years. Actually, for the same reasons that Michael Jackson preferred them ~ THEY DON'T LIE, THEY DON'T JUDGE, THEY LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY, THEY ARE ALWAYS PRESENT IN THE MOMENT; a reflection of the pure innocence that God bestowed upon us as we entered this world. Sadly, it seems we all become affected in some way as we age and attempt to find our way through the complexities of being human: WE ARE ACTUALLY DIVINE SPIRITUAL BEINGS LIVING A HUMAN EXPERIENCE. Not one of us is without fault ~ or we would not be here. "Before you judge me ~ try hard to love me." I, personally, do not believe Michael Jackson was capable of committing the acts of which he was accused. Just as I know that I would not be capable of such things.

This is a serial pedophile with a long history of paying of at least 12 other families just in 1993...and he didnt stop until he had a son who was at the age of some of the same boys he touched before the trial.
The trial was a joke...there was more than enough evidence presented, it was a jury full of fans just like the OJ trial...if this was any other man they would bury him under the jail.

Why doesnt TMZ dig up stuff on the 12 kids that investigators questioned in 1993...especially the one that dropped out for the 2 million dollar check that was participating along with Jordy?

TMZ, why not quote the part in which JORDAN CHANDLER vehemently refused to testify criminally in 2004 when asked, and even went as far as to threaten legal action against the investigators/prosecutors just to get out of testifying? He would've crumbled so fast on the stand, same with Evan Chandler.

The bureau assisted in the investigation & it still resulted in 'Not Guiltyx14'. (yawn)

'questionable noises thru the walls'-that goes on in my house all the time & doesn't amount to 'child molestation'.

"interested in working a possible federal violation against Jackson concerning the transportation of a minor across state lines for immoral purposes."

I figured this was the angle for the bureau involvement. I suppose there are always those who can't get their mind around the idea that an adult prefers the company of children to adults, therefore, there must be a s@x angle involved. He didn't TRUST most adults. Looking at his childhood, not too hard to understand why. Many adults are NOT trustworthy. I completely understand this.
